ORCID, the International researcher id

ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an international solution for researcher identification. You can create an ID at which will be persistent throughout your professional life and which you can use in various workflows such as manuscript submissions and grant applications. In ORCID you can also share information about research data.

Overall, a consistent usage of ORCID facilitates recognition for your publications, and credit for them in bibliometric analyses.

Use your ORCID in LUCRIS

Lund University is a member of the ORCID consortium and you as a researcher can add your ORCID iD to the university personal and address directory LUCAT (your LU-account).

Within 24 hours, your iD is imported from LUCAT to your LUCRIS profile. You can then choose to export information to your ORCID account. By using the export function your ORCID account will automatically be updated with your latest research output added in LUCRIS.

Export from LUCRIS to ORCID includes:

  • information about your affiliation at Lund university
  • research output (only metadata, no full text)
  • other id´s you have added in LUCRIS (Scopus author id, ResearcherID)
  • link to your profile page in LU research portal

Get started

Log in to and choose: Tie ORCID with LU-account
The application in Passport is used for:

  • connect your existing ORCID to your LU-account
  • create a new ORCID and connect it to your LU-account

Your ORCID iD is imported into LUCRIS in 24 hours.

Read more in the detailed manual.

Export research output from LUCRIS to ORCID

Once your ORCID iD has been imported, it’s visible in your LUCRIS-profile (log into LUCRIS) and in LU research portal.

Before you enable the export to ORCID, it may be useful to check that all publications registered in your LUCRIS profile are yours. If you already have several publications in ORCID and some of them are missing identifiers such as DOI, it may be useful to consider how to handle any duplicates.

Read more on how the export function works in the manual.
